Just a quick one on this ,

 

ive been sent a NIP for allegedly doing 46 in a 40 by manned camera .

 

i remember seening a white van with a window cut out but no markings anywhere on it .

 

Are these things still enforceable or does it come under the old entrapment as there was no way of me knowing it was a camera van ?

 

Thx all

Entrapment is when they make or entice you to commit an offence.

So, a car draws up next to you at a set of lights, revs its engine, and the driver says "there are no police around, and I'll give you £50 if you reach the next roundabout before me!" (And then nicks you for speeding.....)

 

So, remind me : how did the van make you speed?

 

Additionally, entrapment is not a defence per se, the defence is if an abuse of process is created by an entrapment ......

there is no requirements.

 

46 in a 40 shouldn't be too bad for points

The limit is 40 and in principle there's no reason why you couldn't be prosecuted for doing 41

- any tolerance is a matter of discretion on the part of the police rather than law.

 

In practice most forces do apply a margin of 10%+2,

but that means that 46 is the lowest speed you'll be prosecuted for, not the highest you can get away with.

 

any previous and how many points are on your licence already?

there is some guidance on 'camera signing, visibility and conspicuity'. part of which says that it shld be 'liveried and clearly idintifiable as an enforcement vehicle' and visible to approaching traffic. but, it is 'guidance', and not law. whether it wld carry any weight re a prosecution...


IMO
